In my head, I’m a rock star. I stand center stage every night in front of tens of thousands of screaming fans, playing guitar and screaming into a microphone. I’m a music genius and I live my entire life in leather pants, like my rock and roll heroes before me.
In real life, I’m a freelance writer and editor, churning out articles behind a desk. My microphone is my MacBook Pro and my stage is multiple online and blogging platforms. But, when I leave the house, I try to let my rocker freak flag fly, just a little bit.
This outfit was a desk-to-dinner option that I threw together a while ago when I needed something that looked cute enough to head to dinner with clients but comfortable enough to the point where I wouldn’t be irritated in about a half hour. This top? Breezy, easy. The pants? Well, we all know how I feel about waxed skinnies – they’re the Starter Wife to my inevitable purchase of a pair of real leather pants.
I love these pieces because you can basically throw this top with any bottom and it works, much like what’s going on from the waist down. The combination of the black waxed skinnies and the shoes work with anything.
